Happy book birthday to the team behind EAT BUGS: PROJECT STARTUP.  Written by Heather Alexander this new middle grade series is inspired by the true story of two young entrepreneurs, Laura D’Asaro and Rose Wang, who became friends in college, landed a deal on Shark Tank, and launched a successful business making chips out of cricket flour. In Book 1, Project Startup, Hallie and Jaye, sixth-grade students-turned-entrepreneurs are on a mission to save the world, one bug at a time! Heather, Rose and Laura are represented by Elizabeth Bennett.

R.L. Stine says: “I totally enjoyed this book. It’s fast and funny–and how scary is it to start a business that asks you to eat BUGS?!”And Mark Cuban calls it: “The perfect book for any young entrepreneur!”
